All files in WEB-INF are protected from public access.

files in /WEB-INF/ are protected and this means, that you can operate
this files only on server side in webapp.

when you output in html tag like this
<script src="/WEB-INF/tiles/js/js1.js"></script>

client browser must get source of js, but js is not accessible to
So yo must put js out of WEB-INF directory, or you can include
it server side

<script type="text/javascript">
<%@include page="/WEB-INF/tiles/js/js1.js"%>
